How do Sepmag® Systems work with ESTAPOR® magnetic microspheres?

Sepmag A System with ESTAPOR magnetic microspheres

The most frequent concern when considering the use of modern Magnetic Bead Separation Systems is their compatibility with specific magnetic beads. Although Sepmag devices are already working successfully in IVD labs and production lines, this is a very legitimate question.

Come to MEDICA and you will get a first-hand look at how Sepmag Magnetic Bead Separation systems work with ESTAPOR® magnetic microspheres. Just drop in to the MerckMillipore booth (Hall 03 / A30) and talk to the magnetic bead experts. Because we share numerous satisfied customers who use their beads and our separation devices, they will be showcasing a Sepmag® A125ml as part of their exhibit.

The Sepmag® A series is suitable for volumes ranging from 1 ml to 250 ml, using homogenous magnetic bead separation conditions that can be reproduced in larger volumes up to 10L or more. The big difference with respect to a standard magnetic separation rack is that processes tested on a Sepmag® A can be scaled up without increasing losses or causing irreversible aggregation problems. Just by using the right large volume Sepmag® Q system your scale-up is guaranteed, because the magnetic force on both devices is homogenous and has the same strength.

Sepmag Q System allows for an easy scale up

If you are considering ESTAPOR® magnetic microspheres for your IVD-kits, just come along to MEDICA to see how they perform with Sepmag® Magnetic Bead Separation systems.
